The Mets' offense scored just one run on Thursday for a second consecutive game in a 2-1 loss to the Brewers at Citi Field.
New York struggled against Brewers starter Chase Anderson, who tossed seven scoreless innings and struck out seven batters. Wilmer Flores finally put the Mets on the board in the eighth inning with a solo shot on the first pitch he saw from Milwaukee's Jacob Barnes, but that was the extent of the team's offensive production.
Anderson limited the Mets to three hits, and Flores' eighth-inning home run would be the team's fourth and final hit of the game. New York had runners in scoring position only twice, and neither of those baserunners would go on to score. The Mets struck out nine times in the game.
Lucas Duda, Flores, and Travis d'Arnaud were the only the only ones with hits for the Mets, while the top four hitters in the Mets' lineup -- Michael Conforto, Jose Reyes, Jay Bruce, and Neil Walker -- combined to go 0-for-15. Curtis Granderson (0-for-2) and Jose Reyes (0-for-4) saw their batting averages drop below .200.
